Over two days, WORT is having a special pledge drive to generate Evergreen donations. These used to be known as Auto Give, where donors can give a set amount each month, deducted automatically from their bank or credit union. This has the advantage of spreading out the donation into small pieces over time, instead of one lump sum donation. So, PNM and Radio Lit have organized a combined hour-long show to highlight literary writings from a few well-known scientists. Joining PNM producer Kelly Schwartz and Radio Lit producer Alejandro Alonso Galva are PNM’ers Will Cushman and Kai Brito. Besides commentary and witty conversations, they read compositions by Aldo Leopold, Rachel Carson, neuroscientist and psychologist Steven Pinker, and a poem by physicist Alan Lightman, among others. And they finish with a speed-round of insightful quotes.
